I recently installed Native Instruments Ultimate 10. In Cubase Pro 8.5, I can open Plug-in Manager and see all the NI instruments, Content, and FX. However, in any project, if I try to add an instrument from either the track section “+” sign, or from the rack using the Add Track Instrument button, the Add Instrument Track dialog doesn’t show me the NI plugins. Only the Steinberg plugins and sound content.
The function worked at one time because I was able to add a 3rd party FM synth instrument to a demo project, prior to installing the NI instruments.
In looking online to figure this out, I see references that the “Add Track Instrument” dialog should contain and “Instrument” field that let’s me browse the instruments I have installed. This field is blank. See attached PDF.
I think I must be doing something wrong since one part of Cubase knows about the NI plugins but the critical part that should allow me to add an instrument track to a project doesn’t see them.
